« on: August 28, 2006, 06:20:56 am »
It's seriously unbelievable, I'm still in shock!

I wont say what it is exactly, or it would spoil the amazing-ness :P well somewhat anyway..

And no, this isnt shameless advertising or some attempt at spreading a virus  ;)

I ran into that invisible wall thing on my first try. You're actually stuck on a door. It's a Beta version, and they say it does have some collision detection problems..

That is really impressive. So it's in beta first or second ?

Yeah, that picture 762 posted was 1011 KB, compared to 96KB for the entire game.

It is pretty amazing considering it's size, but that doesn't mean that it is more fun to play.

I found it fun exploring the environment, and wondering how the hell they fit it all into 96KB. You have to truly understand file-size to be amazed by it. It wasnt meant to be a fun game, but an awe-inspiring proof-of-concept to show you that a very graphical 15min game, with hi-res, bump-mapped texures, fairly detailed environments, and doom 3-like lighting can fit into just 96KB or 96,000 bytes of data, which is 768,000 characters (bits) of data. Compare that to Unreal Tournament 2004, which is 5.2GB, or 44,700,000,000 characters. Even Doom 1 or Wolfenstein were much larger than this game. NES cartridges were about 256-512KBs!
